Ian,
Let me get this straight.
So what you are saying here is that there really is no proper
update footprint?? (reason Protel does not understand the word
update) By that I mean if I have a library of footprints then
change say 10 of them. These 10 were used in a design.
I now would like to be able to update the footprints in the board with the
latest that are in the library with the use of and update
footprint command. In DXP there is still no way to do
that in one update step???
